YouTube Video: Ryan Lochte sets WR in the 200 IM

Ryan Lochte defeats Michael Phelps and sets a new world record in the 200 IM at the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai. Note on the last lap that both Lochte and Phelps share the same "loping" freestyle stroke.

Phelps was very close. Another 2 or 3 meters and he would have won.

I think it was all Lochte's turns. I am sure Phelps will be "back in the lab" after this meet and will tweak what he has to to win if he stays motivated.

Nice to see you're becoming supportive of Phelps.

Yes, Chloe needs to work on her turns. They won't take long to learn.
